Review for Cherish Our Children International, Houston, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have participated with Cherish Our Children International since we began in 1993, as a Board Member,1st Executive Director, and National FUNdraising Coordinator. As a small organization, we have been a catalyst for big changes impacting the lives of children around the world. A few highlights are:

In Romania, deinstitutionalization of orphanges, Returning Montessori teaching, education and treatment for AIDS.
In Serbia, tutoring in orphanges, and providing community services for families of special needs children.
In Israel, supporting Bride for Peace, after school soccer and tutoring for the most needy children.
In U.S., Houston, supporting children of incarcerated parents to break the cycle and become Educated, Not Incarcerated!
I focused on raising funds to support these children and was privileged to see "up close" the differences in thousands of childrens lives.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Have more and stronger fundraisers. Create an ongoing stream of income to benefit our programs.
